Much loved British actor and Keats-Shelley200 Ambassador Julian Sands is back at the Keats-Shelley House for two exclusive and highly intimate readings as part of our Keats-Shelley200 programme to mark the bicentenaries of Keats's and Shelley's deaths in Italy, and to celebrate their extraordinary legacies. Julian's readings will commemorate the bicentenary of John Keats's voyage from London to Italy.
The two separate events will take place on Wednesday 9th September, one at 5 p.m. and the other at 6.30 p.m. [please note that the 6:30 p.m. reading has been sold out]
Julian will read mainly from our anthology titled John Keats and Percy Bysshe Shelley: Essential Poems, which contains a preface written by the actor, and will meet the event's attendees on our terrace over a glass of prosecco after each reading.
